Deal Alert: The 1Gbps fibre edition

Connectivity isn't difficult these days

Accessing the Internet for many is as easy as turning on a tap and something that is rarely thought of. But it is such an important part of our lives these days that we can’t work or play without it.

While we’ve had deals on routers and mesh devices in the past, this time around we found a few 1Gbps fibre deals, some with smart devices, that will help you get connected and stay online.

 

MyRepublic

For S$38.99 a month for 24 months, MyRepublic offers a free home line, and a waiver of service installation fee (S$53.50), the NLT service activation fee (S$56.71), and the Termination Point Installation fee (worth S$160.50). Recontracting subscribers also receive a free third-month on their subscription.

You can get the no-bundle deal here.

But what if you wanted more than just the broadband line? Look no further as MyRepublic has two new bundle offers to share as well.
 

MyRepublic 1Gbps + Google Nest Audio speaker

If you haven't yet purchased a smart speaker, you'll be delighted with the Google Nest Audio as it has pretty good performance for its $139 asking price.

Interested readers can sign up to this bundle for S$45.99 a month. This bundle includes a free chalk-coloured Google Nest Audio Speaker, a S$100 discount on router options from MyRepublic, and a termination point worth up to S$160.50, installed free at your home.

However, MyRepublic also has a 1Gbps plan that is bundled with a Google Nest device. At S$55.99 a month, you can blanket your home in fast and reliable Wi-Fi and use the speakers with the Google Assistant for extra help around the house or play music wherever you go.
